Internet connection settings on the mobile phone
Open Connection settings (from Menu>Tools>Settings). Select Access
points. On the Access points, select one that applies to your network.
If your cellular operator network is not listed, select Select Operator.
- On the connection details, enter the necessary information,
i.e. connection name, data bearer, access point name, user name, password,
authentication, and homepage.
- Back to Connection settings, select GPRS. On GPRS setting, select
whether your GPRS is always available whenever there is a GPRS network
service (i.e. always-on connection) or only connect when needed. Also type in your access point name.
Access point name here refers to the address of the GPRS gateway, i.e. hardware and software that
connects the cellular data network to the Internet.
- To check whether your GPRS settings have been working, test the Internet connection using a browser in the
mobile phone by surfing several WAP or Web sites. If it works, your mobile
phone is Internet-ready.
- Get these details from your cellular data network operator (mobile Internet
service provider): user name, password, and a
phone number to dial
your ISP. Very
often user name and password can be left empty and the phone number to
dial is the default *99# (GSM) or #777 (CDMA).
